To read or not to read?

by Anya Jaremko-Greenwold

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”

— George R.R. Martin, Author of “Game of Thrones” series

“Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.”

— Groucho Marx, Comedian, film star, one of the Marx Brothers

“A bookstore is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking.”

— Jerry Seinfield, Star and co-creator of the sitcom “Seinfield”

“Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.”

— P.J. O’Rourke, Political satirist and journalist

“Books are like mirrors: If a fool looks in, you cannot expect a genius to look out.”

— J.K. Rowling, Author of “Harry Potter” series

“We don’t read novels to have an experience like life. Heck, we’re living lives, complete with all the incompleteness. We turn to fiction to have an author assure us that it means something.”

— Orson Scott Card, Science fiction author of “Ender’s Game”

“People can lose their lives in libraries. They ought to be warned.”

— Saul Bellow, Author of “Herzog;” winner of Pulitzer and Nobel Prize

“Books are no more threatened by Kindle than stairs by elevators.”

— Stephen Fry, British actor and comedian

“I still love books. Nothing a computer can do can compare to a book. You can’t really put a book on the Internet. Three companies have offered to put books by me on the Net, and I said, ‘If you can make something that has a nice jacket, nice paper with that nice smell, then we’ll talk.’”

— Ray Bradbury, Fantasy and science fiction author of “Fahrenheit 451”

“One of the great things about books is sometimes there are some fantastic pictures.”

— George W. Bush, Former U.S. president

“There’s a difference between preferring books to parties and preferring sixteen cats to seeing the light of day.”

— Lauren Morrill, Young adult author of “Meant To Be”
